Become Centered with the Peaceful Art of Meditation
Posted by Peggy Glassman on
If there was any time to start taking more time for yourself, 2020 is that time. Between a global health crisis and a vicious news cycle, this year has been unusually taxing. Of the countless methods for unwinding and destressing, but perhaps the most effective is to do nothing at all. Over the past few years, the holistic practice of meditation has seen growth in circles of people that are seeking peace, self-discovery, and mental healing, and it may be just the thing to keep us focused and optimistic during this unrelenting year.
Betterment through Mental Harmony
No, taking a brief moment out of your hectic day to focus on your breathing and inner peace isn’t going to make you levitate, but it does come with a laundry list of science-backed benefits in regard to your mental health, social life, and even physical well-being. Throughout comprehensive research at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, medical professionals were able to discover across an 8-week study of 3,515 adults that meditation decreases a person’s total stress, feelings of depression, and complaints of chronic pain. As for social improvement, in a separate report, scientists were able to discover that through the right form of meditation, subjects displayed a better outlook on their communities and social interaction.
